    Fiat 500 Abarth To Come With An Automatic Transmission In Due Time

    Fiat is planning to add the option of an automatic transmission into the Abarth lineup.

    "We're not opposed to doing it. We just didn't think there would be consumer requests for it, and there is," Fiat's North American president, Tim Kuniskis told Wards Auto.

    The reason for this? To bring in more buyers, specifically women. With the new Abarth version of the 500C just around the corner, Kuniskis says that the company is expecting a few more women buyers to opt for the more potent version of the cabriolet.

    "I think when we'll see more women is when we have the automatic, and we're planning to add the automatic in the Abarth at some point, only because we're getting that feedback from customers," said Kuniskis.

    We don't know when the Abarth will be getting the automatic at this time.
